February is upon us and how do we here at MMP celebrate the month of love?
With pets, of course!
We are pleased to announce the 2nd annual One Love Animal Rescue Fundraiser. Last year we raised $500 for this amazing organization, and we hope to exceed that amount for 2017.

One Love Animal Rescue helps abandoned, neglected, abused and unwanted pets in the Savannah area by partnering with shelters, rescue groups, and the community to facilitate adoption of these animals into permanent and loving homes.
My family first learned of OLAR two years ago when they were holding one of their adoption days at Pet Smart. We had lost our precious labrador, Zoe, months earlier and were contemplating adopting a buddy for our surviving dog, Riley. Not expecting to find a good match quickly, we drove to the event without expectations. Have you ever heard the saying that humans don’t pick their dog, that dogs pick their human? Well, that’s pretty much what happened to us! After adoption paperwork and a home visit, our family was pleased to welcome Farrah into our clan.
Isn’t she lovely? We adore her kind, gentle spirit and her love of all things that require snuggling. 🙂
Shelter dogs are the best, aren’t they?

Here are the details about the 2nd annual One Love Animal Rescue Fundraiser!
When? Saturday, February 25th from 9:00 – 2:00
Where? MMP’s brand new studio, 128 Frances Meeks Way, Suite 3 in Richmond Hill
What is included? Session fee includes a 15-20 minute session for one pet ($10 per additional), an online gallery, and a treat for your favorite companion! Portraits are a separate purchase and collections begin at $25. Please note that all session fees and 10% of each collection purchased will be donated to One Love Animal Rescue.
Are multiple pets allowed? Yes! Your $25 session fee includes one pet. Please let us know if you will be bringing more than one, each additional is $10. All session fees will be donated to OLAR.
What do I need to bring? Yourself, your pet (of course), your pet’s favorite treat/snack/lovey. If your pet is a fashionista, feel free to bring an accessory or two. In addition, all dogs must be on a leash.
Fine print? For the safety of all involved, your pet must be up to date on all vaccinations, be able to follow basic voice commands (sit, stay), be fully house trained, and friendly around all other people and animals. The only exception allowed is for puppies who are still learning voice commands and working on house training.
How should I prepare for my pet’s session? Please consider having your pet groomed a day or two before the session – don’t forget to clip those toenails! Remember that a tired pet is a happy pet, so please walk, run, or play with your pet about 30 minutes before the session. While I do ask all owners to bring their pet’s favorite treat, they will be used as a last resort to capture your pet’s attention. With that in mind, please do not feed your pet within an hour of their scheduled shoot.
